Medicare Advantage continues to demonstrate tremendous value and receive high satisfaction from seniors
Washington, D.C. – October 6, 2022 – Matt Eyles, President and CEO of AHIP, issued this statement as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the 2023 Medicare Advantage Star Ratings:
“Every American deserves affordable coverage that provides access to high-quality care, and Medicare Advantage plans are committed to delivering the highest quality coverage for seniors and people with disabilities. That’s why more than 29 million Americans choose Medicare Advantage: It delivers better services, better access to care, and better value.
“Medicare Advantage enrollees continue to have access to – and receive – high-quality, affordable care. We see the results in the continued growth of the program, numerous studies that demonstrate the high-quality care that enrollees receive, and sky-high satisfaction rates. We look forward to engaging with CMS to address methodological and other issues to ensure that there are accurate, reliable indicators of plan performance.
“The ongoing and continuing effects of factors such as COVID-19, along with recent CMS methodological and measurement changes, may have affected the 2023 Star Ratings results, which primarily relate to the 2021 performance year. Even so, the majority of Medicare Advantage enrollees are projected to be covered by high performing plans. AHIP and our member plans will continue to review the latest Star Ratings results and data closely to assess impacts.
“Medicare Advantage is a prime example of the government and free market working together to deliver lower costs, more choices, and better outcomes for the American people. AHIP will continue to work with the Administration, Congress, and other stakeholders to ensure Medicare Advantage remains strong and vibrant for the millions of Americans who depend on it for good health.”
